Emotion-Focused Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EF-KAP) (ONLINE LIVE STREAM EVENT)

About this Event

November 9, 2020, 9 am - 4:30 pm ET (Convert to your Time Zone)

Ketamine is emerging as a powerful catalyst to accelerate the healing and recovery process in individuals suffering from a wide array of mental health symptoms. Its use in psychotherapy has particularly been helpful with treatment resistant clients who have long-term, chronic and severe symptoms of mental illness – and who have been suffering for a very long time. For many of these clients, where conventional medications and/or therapy approaches brought little to no relief, ketamine-assisted therapy has been effective, improving quality of life and - in some cases - leading to complete recovery.

This workshop will introduce Emotion-Focused Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EF-KAP) - a therapeutic model to support the application of psychedelic medicine in general, and with ketamine specifically. In this model, informed by emotion-focused treatment approaches, clinicians support their clients before, during and after the ketamine-assisted sessions to facilitate an experience which becomes integrated into their lives well beyond their time in the therapy room. The model also emphasizes caregiver involvement to further help with this aim.

Participants of the workshop will learn how to implement each aspect of the model including how to structure preparation sessions, dosing sessions and psychotherapeutic integration sessions. Vignettes and videos will be presented to illustrate the preparation, ketamine dosing and adjunctive-psychotherapy sessions that make up the model.

You will receive:

  • Login details and instructions emailed in advance of the workshop
  • Downloadable handouts
  • Certificate of attendance upon successful completion of a brief online quiz (if desired)
  • Access to a recording of the workshop for a limited period of time after the workshop - so if you can’t join live, need to take a break or simply want to re-watch your favourite parts, we’ve got you covered!
